    Welcome

    I am also really new here, but I have already found they are a great bunch and make you feel really welcome. I have only been online with them for a week (and their already getting fed up with me posting all the time :)) :))

    We are in the midst of making arrangements for the Silverstone classic in July where various groups are trying to get together 500 Z's for a parade lap on the Saturday so do take a look at the Forthcoming events and the Horwood House threads. :)

    Hi stevie_a

    Welcome, I would love to see some pics of the cars, especially the TR7 as I think that DHC was quite rare.

    Nice to get a recommendation! Pangster has supplied some of our Wiki entries on 'doing stuff' to your Zed.

    Hi Stevie - Big Zorg welcome from me too.

    Great photos... love the TR7, many moons ago someone let me drive theirs... loved it :)

    You're in great company on here, we're all mad about our Zeds and you'll fit in nicely with the Silver Surfers.... there are many of them :coolsteer)
    That's in reference to the colour of your car not your age ;)

    Hi Stevie

    I remember seeing this a couple months years ago at Culzean, i even spoke to you at Strathaven a couple of years ago. As Nero said , get yourself along to a BMWCC meet, we are trying to get the Zed numbers up with a view to dedicated Zed meets in Scotlad.
    Hopefully see your soon
